“Average resort, not spectacular as they claim”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

I have visited and stayed at Lansdowne five times since 2008 and remain unimpressed. These were all business events with a four night stay each time. This week I worked out of a room all day that required a coat. We were greeted with a temperature of 62 degrees and the building engineer was notified several times with little success. The hallways are also freezing and public bathrooms heatless and no hot water. The beds remain very uncomfortable and a very light blanket is on the bed. This is winter, not the middle of summer!! Take a tip from the W and invest in proper and comfortable bedding. When you get out of the shower you wonder where the towels are. You have to walk a trail of water a distance to the sink to find one. Breakfast and lunch buffets in the Hearth were the only good value. A very good selection of cuisine and prepared nicely. Our dinner were buffet which weren't kept hot. Snack bars were stocked with stale pastries. If I had to pay for this myself it would be the last place I would stay.

Room Tip: If you are traveling to Loudoun county to experience the wineries, do yourself a favor and stay at o...

My Husband to be on Feb 14th 2014 and I had reservations to stay at the Lansdowne resort for our wedding night and the following night. We were to be wed at a winery earlier that day; due to the dumping of 2.5 feet of snow our venue cancelled because of no power and no way to get up the mountain due to roads closed. Of course I panicked and didn't know what to do, I called the resort and immediately Amy called me back and put me at ease; she said no problem they would host my ceremony there. I called the celebrant and limo company who were more than willing to change to the adjusted itinerary. Amy and the staff at the Lansdowne resort were so AMAZING!!! She made everything perfect and did a phenomenal job! All the staff at the resort took such good care of us and were wonderful. The entire weekend was amazing and they treated my husband and I really special. It is so nice to walk around and the staff call you by your name. Every meal we had throughout our stay was wonderful and plentiful. Kudos to the entire staff for such a pleasant experience! We will be back!!! Thank you once again to the Entire Staff of the Lansdowne Resort; Especially Amy!!! ~ J & D

Dear Doreen S,
Thanks so much for your amazing 5-star review! I am so pleased, yet not surprised, that our dedicated staff stepped up to make your special day one to truly remember. Amy is indeed a hospitality superstar and I will share your comments with her and the staff. Your dress was absolutely stunning and we received many positive comments about it via social media. Thanks again for the great 5-star review for Lansdowne Resort and we hope you will consider us again when it is time to celebrate your first of many anniversaries to come!
Best Wishes,

James J. Horsman

Our annual couples gathering of 8 long-time friends and our significant others was held for the 1st time @ Lansdowne Resort on Saturday, Feb 22, 2014. We had cocktails and light snacks of high-end cheeses and meats in the resort’s Clubhouse living room, followed by dinner in Majors, the private dining room of the Crooked Billet restaurant, also in the Clubhouse.

The décor was outstanding and very comfortable, allowing each of us to spend some time in a very fluid, but private atmosphere, in talking with each other. The service was 5 star and all of our wants and needs were professionally accommodated by our server, Alexandro, and the manager, Sue.

The food and wine were superb with a broad mixture of chicken, lamb and fish accompanied by delicious vegetables, potatoes and a risotto flavored by mushrooms and bourbon. Many of us spent the evening in the Resort’s guest rooms for a very relaxing evening of camaraderie.

I highly recommend this venue!

We have stayed and enjoyed Landsdowne Resort on numerour occaisions but it pains me to report that we left this time after two hours!. First we were there at 3 and the room was not ready. Understandable but there was no place to wait and have a drink without going out or the building to the golf club where something was open. No comfortable sofas or chairs. Then the room was overlooking the parking lot and the bed was not at all comfortable. The last straw, I went to the hot tub and it was not working AND they said it would not be fixed until Tuesday! Also, no lounge chairs around the indoor pool to sit, relax and read. Not what we expect from a resort. From now on I will only go in the warmer months when there is lots to do outside. Oh and we could hear people talking in the hall way.

Room Tip: go in the warmer months.

The Lansdowne resort is a very nice property with tons of amenities. Workout facility is one of the best I have seen in a hotel, and the pools are also nice. I am here 8 or so times a year for conferences and the hotel rooms always have a funky smell. I think its the cleaning supplies they use. The resort restaurants, are all pretty good with the exception of the riverside hearth.

We took advantage of a recent deal on Certifikid to get away from DC for the weekend. We swam in the pool on Saturday and Sunday, and used our resort credit that was part of the package for dinner on Saturday night. The service was fantastic; everyone went out of their way to be friendly and helpful, and there were lots of nice little touches, including chocolates in the early evening. The meal in the pub was nice, though expensive. My only gripe is with reservations: we upgraded to a corner king "suite" to have a separate alcove for our kids' travel crib. I specifically asked--twice--that we be put in a quiet room, only to discover upon arrival that our room was adjacent to the vending area and service doors, featuring a very old and loud ice machine and the doors through which housekeeping and maintenance barged all afternoon. It terrified our toddler, who refused to sleep in her crib as a result. Room 621 was a big fail for our needs.

Room Tip: "Corner kings" have a separate little room just inside the door that is removed from the m...

Our primary objective was to experience the golf course -- which was top notch and meticulously manicured, especially given the time of year (November). Because of the slightly elevated location, the club house and the adjacent restaurant offer spectacular panoramas of the wooded Virginia landscape. The driving range also offers a great view well beyond the resort property. The resort staff provided first rate service and we found our suite to be very comfortable, clean, and quiet. And because this hotel is easily accessible from Dulles airport, we will definitely come back the next time we travel to the DC area.

Hello hinojosap,
Thanks so much for the oustanding five-star review for Lansdowne Resort. I appreciate your taking time to submit it. While our 45 holes of golf are always in outstanding condition, I hope you can return for golf in the Washington, DC area and our Troon managed facility when it is warm and the greens are rolling fast. While there are many options for golf in Northern Virginia, I am confident you will find our Robert Trent Jones, Jr and Greg Norman courses a pair of the finest in the Middle Atlantic. We hope to see you again soon.
Sincerely,
James J. Horsman
